Christmas Coasters

I call these Christmas coasters because I used variegated yarn in red, white and green, but they don't have to be festive.

This could also be used as a decoration for a purse, or a hat.

Mine turned out to be just slightly over 4 inches from point to point.

WW yarn (I used cotton)
size I hook
Yarn needle

Stitches used:
ss- slip stitch
ch- chain
sc- single crochet
Hdc- half double crochet
dc- double crochet
trc- triple crochet

Ch 3 and join with SS to form ring.

Round 1: Ch 3, (counts as a DC) and make 11 more DC in ring, join with ss to top of beginning ch 3. (12 dc)

Round 2: Ch 1, sc in same stitch as join. ch 1, sc in next st, ch 4, *sc in next st, ch 1, sc in next st, ch 4*. repeat from * to * around ending with ch 4. ss into top of first sc. You should have 6 ch 1 spaces and 6 ch 3 spaces.

Round 3: Ss into the first ch 1 space, *into the next ch 3 space work sc, hdc, dc, trc, dc, hdc, sc, ss into next ch 1 space*. repeat from * to * around, end with ss in top of first ss.

Fasten off and work in ends.
